Top Snap, a leading company in real estate visual marketing services, has recently processed over 1 million property images for over 84,000 listing campaigns. This success is a result of the company’s loyal customer base which includes just over 800 Real Estate agencies and over 7500 agents across Australia and New Zealand. The customer survey conducted by Top Snap showed an outstanding 98% satisfaction rate amongst Top Snap’s clients, with customer service, quality and seamless processes of managing their visual assets as being the major attributes.

“Top Snap has reached a significant milestone in the company’s flourishing operations in the Australian and New Zealand property market and it has been achieved in partnership with our professional photographer network of Top Snap franchisees that are an integral part of the brand, always offering exceptional support to their clients.” said Ralf Barschow, Top Snap Owner and CEO.

“Contributing to this achievement is also Top Snap’s dedicated 24×7 production facility which provides timely, consistent and quality visual assets whether it be property images, virtual furnishings or CAD drawn architectural floor plans.”

“Finally this would not be possible without offering a seamless process to our clients with our custom online image management system Genie Pro.”

The one millionth image was released to O’Brien Real Estate in Frankston, VIC.  Andrew & Marinella Milne from O’Brien Real Estate commented, “Congratulations on the one millionth image for your company. It is not surprising though with the exceptional service Top Snap has provided over the years.

Thank you John Woolley for your flexibility, promptness, friendliness to both us and clients, obliging attitude and excellent results. Nothing has ever been too much trouble.”

By combining most advanced Top Snap Studio photo design and retouching, profile customisation for corporate customers, and insights from processing over 1 million plus documented images, Top Snap is committed to provide the most professional and appealing visual applications for every Real Estate marketing requirement.

Good Feet® Distributor:

The Distributor agreement is offered for markets where there are limited opportunities to sell unit franchises by a Good Feet® Master operator. Certain countries are better fit for a distributorship to allow the brand to grow with less governmental intrusion.

If yes, then a Good Feet ® Distributorship will provide you with ownership of the exclusive rights to distribute Good Feet® products into countries where you will have the ability to serve multiple wholesale, retail and the direct consumer markets through your distribution.

Currently Good Feet® is a growing international franchised retailer of personally fitted, pre-fabricated arch supports with over 107 franchises located throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Korea, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates and Puerto Rico. According to Gary Sanchez, Director of Marketing, “many of our existing franchisees are rapidly expanding their stores to other markets. In fact, over 20 franchisees are now multiple store owners. One of our franchise owners leads this trend now owning 13 U.S. based Good Feet® locations! [The company’s] franchisees are grabbing up these markets as they see this as smart business investment, and are positioning themselves in front of a recognized, high-growth, consumer market trend”].

Starting out as a small family-owned business in 1992, the first Good Feet® Store opened in San Diego, California in 1995 to help people who, like the company’s founder, suffered tremendous foot and back pain that was so crippling their quality of life had deteriorated.

Good Feet® Worldwide is now an international franchised retailer of personally fitted, pre-fabricated arch supports. Good Feet® Worldwide has an excellent promotional viewpoint, because their products are researched and proudly created in America, with size options for everyone.

Good Feet® is a retail arch support store that sells custom fit arch supports that are designed to alleviate and even eliminate foot related pain.

As America’s #1 arch support store®, Good Feet® has been providing quality products since 1995. Our uniquely designed pre-fabricated arch supports are designed to support the feet, eliminate or alleviate foot pain, evenly distribute weight and take pressure off of areas that need it most.

In addition, our products are designed to align the body by placing the feet, the body’s foundation into an “Ideal” position. With proper support, posture and alignment, foot pain, knee pain and back pain is a thing of the past for hundreds of thousands of customers.

With such a large portion of the population worldwide experiencing foot pain, the need for Good Feet® products is increasing exponentially. Rising health care costs as well as the overwhelming self-help treatment desires of today’s savvy consumers are also major factors affecting buying decisions.

Good Feet® provides you marketing materials and trains you to educate the consumer about our products which leads to highly qualified traffic. Our experienced sales associates are able to convert traffic at a high percentage and with a high average sales ticket.

The most common foot pain problems are caused by wearing improper footwear, walking on hard surfaces for long periods of time, improper arch support, sports injuries or being overweight.

What type of prior experience does a franchise need to have?

Strong business acumen and/or experience as a previous business ownership are valuable, as is a retail / consumer focused mentality.

However, Good Feet® don’t expect franchisees to have experience in our industry.

Is financing available?

No, Good Feet® does not offer direct financing to franchisees. We are able to provide references to qualified financing or lending agencies that support the franchise industry.

What is the term of the franchise agreement?

The initial term of a Good Feet® franchise agreement is ten years, with a subsequent renewal option of ten years.

Are there ongoing fees paid to the franchisor?

Franchisees currently do not pay a royalty to the franchisor. They do pay a nominal monthly Advertising & Marketing fee per store per month.

What will I receive as part of the Good Feet® franchise system?

Franchisees and their key managers will receive classroom training for approximately two weeks. They will also have access to the Good Feet® media library and to the Good Feet® trademarks, approved suppliers and proprietary information technology systems.

How much will the Good Feet® franchise investment cost me?

The total initial investment depends on a number of factors including construction costs, and the franchisee’s working capital reserve during their first three months of operation. Good Feet® recommend a total liquid capital required of a minimum $50,000 however this may vary according to country and/or the franchisee’s particular circumstances.

A growing multi-billion dollar industry

In recent years teeth-whitening has skyrocketed into a multi-billion dollar industry encompassing products like toothpaste and teeth-whitening systems as well as services offered by dentists, salons, spas and shopping centre kiosks/stores.

In Australia, the booming cosmetic teeth-whitening industry is fast approaching the 2 billion dollar mark and continues to attract male and female customers aged from 16 to well into their 70s as an increasingly image-conscious public covets the ‘Hollywood Smile’ of gleaming, white teeth.

In the US alone, teeth-whitening is an $US11 billion ($AU13 billion) industry. Dentists have long been known to charge in excess of $1000 for teeth-whitening however, in recent times, along with technological advancements, consumers have been able to achieve outstanding results for a mere fraction of the cost in non-dental settings.

Not all smiles are created equal!

The growing teeth-whitening industry has developed many new services and products that often use either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to ‘bleach’ teeth.

In true entrepreneurial spirit, Smile Bar is leading the way in innovation by providing peroxide free, safe, painless and cost effective in-chair teeth-whitening that produces up to 12 shades whiter results with zero sensitivity.

Cosmetic teeth-whitening is no longer just a perk limited to the lifestyles of the rich and famous – at Smile Bar; we make it our business to put the glamour and celebrity back into everyone’s life!

Smile Bar offers customers a contemporary and vibrant experience – we specialise in professional high quality in-chair cosmetic teeth-whitening treatments using the latest technology along with the finest materials. In addition, we sell professional take home teeth-whitening and/or maintenance kits.

Each Smile Bar destination is situated in very convenient shopping centre locations where customers are able to take a load off, sit back, chill for a short spell and minutes later, leave feeling like a superstar flashing a brighter, whiter, sexier smile!

Our stores are staffed by upbeat, friendly, people who use their expertise to ensure that customers are provided with a truly sophisticated teeth-whitening service along with add-on sales of take home whitening and/or maintenance kits. We also aim to educate customers in the proper way to care for and maintain their whiter, brighter choppers!This unique level of in-store experience is backed up with compelling special offers, gift certificates as well as online sales where customers can book appointments and/or purchase products.

Smile Bar offers a state-of-the-art experience that endeavours to inspire all customers to pursue their inner ‘superstar’. The Smile Bar business is all about giving people a reason to smile! After all, we know that a whiter, brighter smile brings with it a higher level of self confidence and presents a more aesthetic image.

Our vision and philosophy is progressive, vibrant and synonymous with bringing the very latest in cosmetic teeth-whitening. With this in mind, we have created a super cool environment evoking a clean and fresh ambience that not only serves as testimony of the brand’s contemporary image but essentially appeals to the modern and busy consumer.

Located in shopping centres, Smile Bar offers two store formats to choose from – the Kiosk and the In-Line – both of which have a distinct look and feel.

Smile Bar stores are currently reaping the rewards of good business planning, store design and a superior teeth-whitening offering. A Smile Bar franchise business provides a relatively low cost, high turnover and very simple retail operation, making it an ideal platform for an owner and/or operator or the multi-unit investor.

The total initial investment for your franchise includes the fully operational setup of your store/s – the Smile Bar franchise is a complete turnkey operation. From the moment you set foot into your very own Smile Bar store, you are ready to trade – that means everything will be in place so that you can start earning an income from day one!

As a Smile Bar Franchisee, you can expect:

proven business systems

complete turnkey operation

contemporary store design & fitout

exclusive territory

comprehensive initial training

opening assistance

ongoing mentoring and support

marketing & advertising assistance

corporate website listing

groovy uniforms

and a whole lot more!

If you are looking to be part of one of the most exciting and recession proof industries in the world as well as part of a network of fun and savvy entrepreneurs, the Smile Bar business is your kind of franchise!

If you love to have fun and put a smile on people’s faces; if you are entrepreneurial minded, driven and dedicated; and if you are in touch with your inner ‘superstar’; business ownership with a Smile Bar franchise (or two, three or more) may have you smiling all the way to the bank!

Together with our franchise partners, leading the cosmetic teeth-whitening industry and setting the benchmark for high standards is something we do consistently. Our vision is to continue to do so and to be the global leader in cosmetic teeth-whitening franchising.Find out more on how you can become part of the Smile Bar phenomenon!

Convenient, Effective Learning System Now Available to Australian Families.

[embedded content]

Van Nuys, CA – According to recent report, the tutoring industry in Australia has grown by nearly 40 percent within the past five years and is valued at $6 billion. Tutor Doctor, the fastest growing “in-home” private tutoring franchise worldwide, has entered Australia for the first time with plans under way for one location in Sydney and a second location opening in Melbourne by the end of 2014.

Leading the brand’s expansion in Australia is Hugh Moore, owner of the new Sydney franchise. Hugh has 17 years of experience working in finance for various investment banks in Sydney, London and Singapore. Hugh’s immediate goal will be to build a team of high-quality tutors with a passion and patience for teaching while also informing locals about the Tutor Doctor brand and the company’s rapidly expanding one-to-one tutoring service designed to help students in all subjects at all levels.

“I decided to be one of the first to open a Tutor Doctor franchise in Australia because I was impressed by the personalised and comprehensive service that the Tutor Doctor model offers,” said Moore. “The Tutor Doctor advantages are numerous: one-to-one learning in the home, a detailed matching process to ensure the student and the tutor are the right fit and an end-to-end service from the initial consultation to ongoing progress reports. With more than a decade of experience globally, Tutor Doctor has a proven track record tutoring students in various countries and I am confident that our business will thrive in Australia.”

The Tutor Doctor program begins with an in-depth academic and learning style assessment in order to create a custom program and to find the right match between the tutor and student. Tutor Doctor also works with the students’ current teacher to ensure that they are meeting both the student’s and teacher’s expectations. Throughout the process, parents will receive ongoing communication and support from Tutor Doctor. Earlier this year, Tutor Doctor rolled out a new program called the Academic Game Plan – a plan that works with students individually to help them develop strong organizational, planning and goal setting skills. Together with the one-to-one tutoring model, students are able to build both the confidence and study skills necessary to succeed in school and in life.

In addition to providing school-age students with tutoring in various subjects, many families also hire Tutor Doctor to help students get ahead and prepare for more advanced challenges, such as honours classes that could help them get into a preferred college or university. Tutor Doctor has also proven valuable for the rapidly growing home-schooled population, as well as for seniors wanting to learn technology skills.

“Australia is a perfect match and an untapped market for the Tutor Doctor model and we couldn’t be more thrilled for Hugh to launch operations in Sydney this month,” said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. “Our business model in Australia will be very similar to the U.S. and U.K. model with the advantage that there is a strong Asian population in Australia that has historically showed a higher usage of tutoring services. It’s a phenomenal opportunity for us because there is no other company like Tutor Doctor currently operating in Australia.”

Furthermore, Mohan Dhall, CEO of the Australian Tutoring Association (ATA), was a keynote speaker at a previous Tutor Doctor Annual Conference in New Orleans and, as a result of Tutor Doctor expanding into the country, the company has recently became a member of the ATA.

Most Franchisees hire instructors who then travel to various venues (schools, birthday parties, summer & vacation camps, fairs, and/or events) to teach the unique programs. By providing outreach programs many Franchisees do not have to worry about the additional overhead that is created by a physical location.

Nutty Scientists® prides itself on maintaining a flexible model that can be adapted to the needs of every city/region/country – Nutty Scientists® seeks dynamic entrepreneurs wishing to excel in enriching the lives of children whilst at the same time building a thriving and profitable business asset.

You don’t need to have a background in science but a strong sales and marketing background with a desire to develop and grow a thriving business is highly regarded and most advantageous.

The Nutty Scientists® Franchise Fee for prospects in Australia and New Zealand is $50,000. The estimated initial investment ranges between $60,000 and $70,000. This estimated initial investment covers your initial Franchise Fee, equipment, supplies, start-up costs, training and working capital.

Master Franchise Investment

The Master Franchise opportunity allows Franchisees to generate revenue by operating franchises, selling franchises and receiving royalty payments from their Franchisees. The Master Franchise model allows the serious businessperson to grow a rewarding, successful and thriving business.

The Nutty Scientists® Australian or New Zealand Master Franchise fee ranges between $200,000 and $500,000 depending on the size and demographics of the territory, and number of Nutty Scientists® franchises that can be opened.

Franchise Central is doing its bit to grow relations and open two way opportunity channels between Australia and Malaysia.

In recent times, the Malaysian government placed focus on the growth of the country’s franchise industry with specific goals set for the industry to contribute 9.4% to the country’s GDP and to become a leading franchise hub in the South East Asia region by the year 2020.

With opportunities plentiful for international franchise expansion in Malaysia, there is currently a strong push by the Malaysian government to attract more international franchises.

Franchise Central’s senior franchise consultant Mr. Nick James, recently had in depth discussions with The Hon. Dato Sri Mustapa Mohamed, Minister of International Trade and Industry, Malaysia, on his recent visit to Melbourne from Kuala Lumpur.

Discussions centred on boosting trade competitiveness, business opportunities in Malaysia and in particular, establishing co-operative relationships to partner with Malaysian businesses seeking to expand via Franchising in Malaysia and also in assisting Malaysian investors to select and invest in premium Australian franchise businesses.

Dato Sri Mustapa expressed that it was essential that such a business relationship would be with a firm that has a proven track record of building better businesses in Australasia.

Mr. James firmly agreed that seeking assistance from successful and rewarding professional partners where growth and a mutually fruitful relationship is a core responsibility is paramount to success and longevity.

“A successful partnership is one where all contribute and all are rewarded over many years.

“With a population of just under 30 million, Malaysia’s middle class is rapidly growing which in turn, is fuelling demand for quality businesses and franchises to service and supply this demand.

“With proven success in assisting and guiding franchises and businesses to develop their systems, brands and markets from Singapore and Australia into Malaysia, Franchise Central is well placed to foster this relationship,” said Mr. James.

There has been great engagement and collaboration between Australia and Malaysia for many years and investment continues to grow steadily between both countries.

When it comes to prioritising the franchising and education sectors in collaboration with Malaysian authorities and Franchise Central as a two way traffic partnership, the Minister says, “We are open for business!”

Dato Sri Mustapa emphasised that dealing with Franchise Central would give Malaysian investors many options in choosing a business career in self employment whether it be in Malaysia or Australia.

“The Malaysian government has taken a pro-business initiative to assist franchises and investors to initiate and grow franchises. There is a very strong demand to own your own business in Malaysia”, said Mr. James.

The Minister expressed that he felt a common bond with Mr. James as he too, has been pro-franchising for his country and has led many delegations over the years to Australia seeking professional franchise consultants and franchises.

“Over the years, the Malaysian people have cultivated a strong connection with Australians and welcome Australian opportunities to expand into Malaysia’s growing consumer market – at Franchise Central, we encourage our clients and other franchisors who wish us to represent them to enter into the strong and affluent Malaysian franchise sector as part of their international franchise expansion plans,” said Mr. James.
